The East European Performing Arts Platform (EEPAP) and the Art Stations Foundation covered the costs of travel and accommodation for 5 choreographers and dance makers from the East European region who took part in the Nobody’s Dance meeting within the framework of the international initiative Nobody’s Business, which took place in Poznań on 20-23 June 2017. The participants were selected through an open call announced in April 2017. See the open call here.
The participants selected to take part in the meeting were:
Nobody’s Dance is an open-source platform for the distribution and development of practical literacy in dance. Throughouth the 4-day meetings, professional artists meet on equal grounds to share practical tools and knowledge. We want to affirm that performing arts, movement, speech, dance, action, are all things that belong to Nobody, but are rather activated by and pass through each of us. All practices shared in those meetings are documented on a website, for us to begin to trace and accredit the genealogy of sources and influences within contemporary performing arts.
Nobody’s Business has carried out week-long sessions of Nobody’s Dance and Nobody’s Indiscipline (for sharing practices across disciplines) in Stockholm, Brussels, Berlin, Copenhagen, Milan, Minneapolis, Santarcangelo, and Oslo.
EEPAP covered the costs of travel and accommodation for the meeting participants.
